Claims on Hoarke.
Case, settled by the National Board of
Arbitration during (he summer are also
enumerated in the report. Among the
caboa were seven which had to do with
Pa Rou:ke of the Omaha club. Six
Mayers that Pa did not pay board for
around the village very long asked for a
little extra pay. Four of them got It.
It S. Alexander,' Emmctt Ormsby, Clo-
tled. First, that no official action
had been taken by the solons of organ
ised and outlaw base ball toward ef
fecting peace; secorfd, that no such action
would be taken by or at this convention.
This much was made plain by Ban
Johnson. Garry Hermann, Charles Ebbets,
"50 President of the Brooklyn National league
team, and Charles Thomas, president-secretary
of the Chicago Cubs.
Han Johnson, Garry riermann, Messrs.
Kbbets and Thomas were much sought
alter, following their conferences tn Chi
cago with H. B. Ward of Brooklyn and
President .Wreghman of Chicago, pillars
in tho Federal league.
"I want It to be clearly understood,"
said Mr. Johnson, "we have had con
ferences with these gentlemen and we
have discussed In great detail the dif
ferences between us and weighed many
I propositions for peace, but all this we
have done unofficially. That Is, we
of Organised base ball have met with
these gentlemen, not as officials of any
league or commission, but purely as In
dividuals. AVo were Invited to hold
such conferences by the representatives
of the Federal league nnd we madA It
plain to them that anything we said or
did was not mora than our personal
views and had no relation to our of
Hope for Penoo,
"I can say this the interests of base
ball demand peace and order; we hope
for peace and order and wo believe It
will come before long."
"Do you think It will come out of pend
ing negotiations, even though of this un
official character?" Mr. Johnson was
"Well, possibly, yes, though that Is
quite uncertain now," lie replied. "Oh,
of course, things cannot go on as they
are. Any clear-headed man knows that.
The game cannot prosper In a turmoil."
"When Mr. R. B. Ward first called me
Into conference with him," says Mr.
Herrmann, "I told him, 'Now, Mr. Ward,
you understand that I am talking to you.
not as the chairman of the National com
mission, but merely as Garry Hermann
at your request and anything that takes
place at our meeting must be considered
as unofficial In character.' And Mr.
Ward, as well as Mr. Weeghman thor
oughly appreciated that. But they have
loth seemed to realize quite clearly that
the tlma has come for the Federal
league to seek peace with Organized base
Cub Option Expires
Herrmann declared that Weeghman
had an option on the Chicago Cubs' stock
and that the option ran out Monday. At
a conference Monday the option was re
newed for a few days until a subsequent
conference may be held between Weegh
man and Johnson or Herrmann the latter
part of this week or the first of next
week. . . - m.
Ban Johnson Is to meet Charles Weegh
man, chief of the Federals, In Chicago to
day and at that meeting, or as a result of
that meeting, something in the good name
of peace may happen. Garry Herrmann
remains at the Omaha convention,
Char lee II. Kbbets. the Brooklyn mag
nate,, had something to say about this
much mooted question of tho Wards'
making an offer for his club.
"I have received jio offer for the Brook
lyn team." said Mr. Ebbets, who Is a
very emphatic man. "I am looking for
and desiring no offer. I would not take
11,000,0110 for the club. It will be worth
another million in ten years. Why should
I sell? I like the game and the only rea
son why I would quit It would be poor
health and thus far there la no Indication
of tnat No, sir, put it down for me that
I am not on the market. If the talk of a
Federal league settlement hinges on
Brooklyn, then It s all talk."
This much Is emphatically affirmed by
all who pretend to speak from the card
and have any right to speak that Federal
league negotiations, business or proposals
will not, officially, come before the pres
ent convention of the National asso
slatlon: that nothing this present in
vention does will have a direct official
bearing on any negotiations pending
to produce peace in the base ball world,
although peace may follow on the heels
of the convention.
Majora Want to Dictate.
Just, here. It may pay not to 'be toe
unsophisticated. There are a few eccen
tric circles revolving In this little ma
chine. Unquestionably the majora would
prefer to see the war settled on their own
but two and three years ahead. With
the minors, of course. It . la totally dif
ferent. But over and above all this Is
the expressed desire of Messrs Johnson.
Hermann and others for reasonable
A close friend of Weeghman. who Is
averse to the ute of his name In this
connection, says you may be very sure
of one thing, that Weeghman will make
no dicker with Organised base bsll purely
for his own selfish advantage.
"Mr. Weeghman Is a square man."
says he, "and will not settle until he can
settle In such a way as to take care of nil
the Federal league men with whom he la
Interested. He wants peace, no doubt
of that, but not peace at any price."
It Is eaay to discover the strength of
the Players' Fraternity. You find
many men of weight at this convention
admitting that but for the Pave Fults
organisation, the Federal league would
never have gained its present strength
and fighting powers.

End of Prize Fights

hard to discover on the part of the majora
a decided aversion to having this thing
come within the scope of the minor league
deliberation. And keep In mind the fact
that this present convention la primarily
a minor league affair. So, again. It Is
urged and probably correctly, that this
convention will have no hand in redreas-

Mll;e Gibbons. Last night, however,
Gibbons wired the promoters here that
he would not go over the tweniy-round

Breese Comes for Western
Confab and Then Disappears
A very Important meeting of the Went- Omaha, had Breese paged and even In-
ern league was scheduled for the Paxton
hotel at & o'clock yesterday afternoon.
The meeting was scheduled, but that
After spending several precious mo
ments rounding up ais herd President
N orris L. O'NIell succeeded in corralling
Jimmy McGill of Denver. Hugh Jones of
Lincoln. Pa Rourke 'of Omaha, Archie
Catlln of Topeka. Kd llanlon of H.oux
City, Frank Isbell of Iea Moines and
Jack Holland of St. Joseph. The seven
and O'NIell were comfortably reclining
In arm chairs In O'.N'leU s room and
O'NIell was calling the roll when It was
dlncovere.1 that Dan Breese of Wichita
was not among those present.
Mr. Breese came to Omaha to attend
the Western league meeting. Breese had
a hunch that he and his franchise would
be a mooted question In tho Western
league meeting and he wanted to be In
0:1 all the doings. If there was to be
any oratory Breese intended to occupy
the floor his nhaie of the time.
O'Niell telephoned all the hotels In
quired of the general delivery department
at the postofflce. He had all the bell
hops in town calling the name of Breese.
For an hour the Western moguls lin
gered in waiting fur Breese. But Breeae
never appeared and ihe meeting was
called off until 10 o'clock this morning.
In the meantime Jimmy McGill was half
an hour late to dinner and O'Niell had a
date with the board of arbitration.
Breese, It was learned, had heard that
the meeting wan to be held In the con
vention hall at the Rom hotel and not
at the Paxton. lit waited equally as
long In the convention hall for the meet
ing as the magnates did at the O'Niell
suite. Breese finally got tired watting
and went over to see If Omahaa new
Masonic Temple was In the class with
the one at Wichita. He stayed a while
to make the acquaintance of the members
of the order here befoi returning to the
hotel to learn that the Western leanue
meeting had been called and thei, called
off without anything occurring.
Breese proinlnes faithfully to be un
hand this morning with both feet front.
